Interior secretary Ryan Zinke announced an advisory committee to expand recreational opportunities on public lands.

On Friday, Zinke shared a video report on the meeting and outdoor products showcase held last week with the Outdoor Recreation Industry Roundtable, which includes the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

NMMA president Thom Dammrich, one of the key leaders of ORIR, helped start that meeting and guided Department of Interior Secretary Zinke through a showcase of American-made boats.

As a result of the meeting, the Interior Department announced a new outdoor recreation advisory committee to expand recreation opportunities on public lands and waters.

Sea Ray was one of three marine manufacturers chosen to attend and have a boat on display.

“We’re honored to have been invited to participate in this event,” Scott Ward, president and general manager of Sea Ray Sport Yachts and Yachts, said in a statement. “As a leading manufacturer of American-made boats, Sea Ray is committed to championing our country’s natural resources and enabling boaters to enjoy them to the fullest. Together with our dedicated dealer network, our fellow manufacturers and organizations like the NMMA, we’re proud to champion boating as one of the best ways to get outdoors.”
